Honestly, we expected more. The story of three youngsters who want to become something very different than what they are.Their goal in life is to meet a foreign girl , fall in love and get out of India. Where else to meet a foreign girl, than Goa- India's most famous tourist destination? Perhaps inspired from all the teen comedies of the west (and a bit of Dostana) but written for the tamil audience, the movie is fun to watch. What it lacks in story and screenplay, it makes up with the fun quotient. The movie is well directed, but the screenplay is awful. There is good character development for the three leads, but the other characters lack the depth. The Jessica Alba (yeah, that's her name!) role played by Melanie(?) is over the top. She looks great but falls in love with the uneducated 'priest' Saami (Premji Amaren). Wow. Piya and Sneha have undeveloped characters and there's no straight plot progression, whatsoever. Sneha is awful. Someone needs to teach her some acting.
The best thing in the acting department is Premji . He provides some hilarious moments throughout the movie. Be it, the head shaking , dance for 'kangal irandal' or his fight scene spoof of 'baba(tamil actor rajinikanth)' and 'vettaikaran (tamil actor vijay)' , he is funny. The others just play their roles. Jai's broken English (although not new for Tamil cinema) provides a lot of funny moments too. Vaibhav just fits the role and is miscast. Aravind(?) looks great (six pack syndrome) and so does Piya and they do a decent job in acting. The film also has cameo appearances from tamil actors Prasanna, Silambarasan and Nayanthara, who provide some funny moments.
Yuvan Shankar Raja's score is awesome. A couple of hits already from the movie and he does a great job throughout, be it the tamil folk genre or the Techno club mix , he is great.
What could have been a delightful entertainer is marred by a terrible screenplay. Maybe it's time Venkat Prabhu took some time to write a good screenplay. But , this is one movie you enjoy with a group of friends.
My Rating: 2.5 on 5. Worth a Watch.
